Patricia Ann “Patsy” Choate Mount peacefully left this world Tuesday afternoon, December 26, 2017 at the age of 77.
Born February 22, 1940, in Galveston, Texas, Patsy lived her entire life on The Island. She was a 1958 graduate of Ball High School and maintained many of her school friendships throughout her life.
After high school, Patsy became a member of the Theta Delta Beta (TDB) sorority with many of her close friends. The TDB’s were a special part of her life. She enjoyed socializing at the monthly meetings, doing charity work and also fundraisers that provided wonderful Mother’s Day luncheons every year.
Throughout her life, Patsy worked at The Port of Galveston, The Collis Broussard Dodge Motor Company and was a realtor for Bisby and Madison and later with The House Company.
She enjoyed playing in several Mahjong groups every week, and especially traveling the world with her husband of 34 years, Dr. Jerry Mount.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Lily Mary LeBlanc and Roy Patrick Choate, her brother, Otto Yelton, sister, Barbara Gaddis, step daughter, Linda Mount and Nephew, Robert Gaddis.
Patsy is survived by her husband, Dr. Jerry Mount; son Jay Jones and wife Sharee of Magnolia, daughter, Natalie Knust and husband Randy of The Woodlands, step son, Mike Mount and wife Janet of Galveston, brother, Albert Choate and wife Janet of Galveston, and nephew John Gaddis and wife Kayla of Galveston.
Also surviving “Honey” are her grandchildren; Jennifer Koehler and husband Kyle, Wesley Jones and wife Lindsey, Randy Knust, Jr., Hailey Knust and five great grandchildren.
Patsy was a wonderful, fun loving, and generous Mom. She will be missed by her family and friends.
